      Friday Night Blitz continues to inch closer to the end of the regular season, and several high school football teams have already begun to lock up playoff spots and region championships while others get set to make their final push for post-season berths.

      This week's Blitz Game of the Week pits two one-loss, Class 4A schools together in a Region 5 contest with playoff implications on the line. Jemison (7-1) will travel to meet Calera (7-1) Friday night with a No. 2 seeding in the playoffs up for grabs.
